Money may be tight but that doesn’t mean you can’t work on yourself and enjoying the FireLife even more.
I have multiple free resources you can join at any time.
Facebook Group for FireWives Only – We aren’t your usual group. I know when I started it in 2013 it was the only group that is for wives only. We’re active 24/7 and full of women that aren’t into hero worshiping. We love our firefighters, but we’re there to chat, get feedback, cheer, rant and make it through our regular day with a bit of our sanity.
30 Days to a Happier YOU – I created this 30 day challenge with the intent to charge for it. But then I felt I needed to share it with as many FireWives as possible. I hope you will take the challenge and let me know how it goes.
FireWife Entrepreneur – Free planner download for following up on emails. A little bit of biz info shared here and there. I also have a couple of free groups set up to market our business and to network with other owners.
Don’t Be A Whiny FireWife – One thing we love to help new community members combat is being that whiny FireWife. No one wants to be around that! Ebook is free to download and start evaluating if you may be a bit whiny. We have all been there at times!
Besides the resources I offer, here are a few more that can be very helpful to all of us.
SafeCallNow.org – Bottling up issues is common in Emergency Services. Safe Call Now is here to help. Our firefighters can call them for support AND you can call them if you feel there is something that you need help with. It is for all first responders and their families to get help.
First Responder Support Network – The mission of the First Responder Support Network (FRSN) is to provide educational treatment programs to promote recovery from stress and critical incidents experienced by first responders and their families. Again, this organization has a program for spouses. Don’t deal with issues alone.
For3Sisters.com – This an awesome resource for women and families battling breast cancer. If you or someone you know is going through it, please pass the site link. They are there to talk and help you find resources you need.
Good Neighbor Next Door Program – This program has been created for teachers and first responders to make an extremely low purchase of a home. This home needs to be your primary residence and will need rehab work. The program was created to help revitalize neighborhoods. Some of the deals are amazing.
Asbestos.com – This website has treatment options and a lot of information about asbestos which is something all our firefighters come in contact with. They recently created an in-depth guide just for firefighters. It details their extreme risk of asbestos exposure, what they can do to avoid exposure, and what are their next steps if they have been affected.
